Recently I've been teaching my sister, who is in High School, coding. Sometimes when reading code, there will be keywords and functions whose meanings and use aren't always clear. I wanted to make something to allow people new to coding to quickly learn what means what.

What it does

This VS Code extension allows users to select a function name or keyword. There, the user can do Shift+Cmd+P then type in Scope It. It will then redirect users to documentation or more information about the word they selected.

What I learned

I had never built or published a VS Code extension before. I learned some things about the VS Code API and how the publishing process works. I hope to build more extension in the future with what I have learned.

What's next for Code Scope

Currently the only supported language is Python. In the future, I hope to bring support to other languages like Java, Javascript, and Swift.
